Fans of UK Motoring show Top Gear would be very well aware of the Bugatti Veyron. A car worth over $2,000,000 Australian dollars with 1,001 horsepower which can accelerate from 0 to 100km/hr in 2.6 seconds.
And now, someone in the UK (Surrey) managed to crash one.
Reports suggest that the accident occurred in heavy rain on a 60km/hr section of Renfree Way, Shepperton, Surrey, on Sunday. How can this happen to the worlds ultimate supercar?
A van of course, a Vauxhall Astra van carrying a pregnant woman, who was taken to hospital as a precaution but later went home.
The police have obviously blamed the Bugatti driver for driving without due care and attention. Now I don’t know about you but if I had a 2 million dollar car, I’d be driving it with a bucketload of care and attention!
I would love to see his insurance premium bill for next year!
Reports suggest that the owner of the car is Businessman Kumar Soni who lives in a 3 million pound mansion only a few KM from the site of the crash scene.
Eye witness accounts suggest that the car was speeding prior to the accident. The rain was lashing down when the accident happened and the car spun three times before clipping the Astra. One motorist who stopped told the police he thought the car had passed him at around 100 mph and it made him flinch as the car threw up spray from the road as it roared past him.
“After the accident there was more trouble for the driver when a man arrived in a dark VW 4 x 4 with personalised number plate. He was shouting and screaming and saying to him that he could not believe he had crashed the car.” Daily Mail UK
It is thought the angry motorist was Ajay Soni’s 41-year-old brother who is known to drive a 4X4 VW.
